A HAIR salon has won a place in the finals of a prestigious national award.

Industry, of Wick Lane, Christchurch, was picked to go forward to the L’Oreal Colour Trophy Grand Final 2014.

They had only 30 minutes to create their winning look, inspired by the autumn-winter fashions for 2014-15.

The event, at the Park Plaza Hotel in London, was presented by Layla Anna-Lee.

Industry will have its shot at the 59th L’Oreal Colour Trophy on June 23 at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London’s Park Lane.

The overall winners will pick up a prize package including a photo shoot in London, a day training with an experienced session stylist, a fashion shoot with Elle magazine, lunch with a hairdressing idol and a personalised plan to promote the salons.
